Neo silently outs Edge OmniPad Tegra tablet




Been talking to the rep of Neo Philippines for the last 2 weeks about their Android tablet, the Neo Edge OmniPad, but they told me it’s on a limited release to only their business and enterprise partners.



As such, they’re not actively marketing it to the public. I have not personally seen the device but they’ve already promised to send me a unit once it’s become available (looks like a lot of our friends in the press are also lining up). Some folks have bought units out in the wild though {via TPC}. I am told Compex has some stocks being sold in their retail stores.


Neo Edge OmniPad
10.1″ 1024×600 pixel capacitive touch screen
Dual-core Cortex A9 1 GHz
NVIDIA Tegra 250
512 MB DDR2 + 512 MB NAND
Android 2.2
WiFi 802.11 b/g
Bluetooth 2.1
HDMI out
1.3MP webcam
USB 2.0 port
microSD (bundled with 16GB)
3G (optional)
3300 mAh Li-Ion battery (6 hours of HD video or 15 hours of music)

The WiFi-only version is selling for Php15,990 and there’s a 3G version for Php19,990. Neo reps tell me they’re coming out with a better model to introduce to the market so this one’s on a limited release only (the tablet is actually a rebadged Advent Vega and/or POV Mobii Tegra Tablet.).

    Nice specs right there. But this would be overshadowed again since release of iPad 2 is just around the corner.

  3. richard says:

  4. JunAlquis says:

    diba local brand ang Neo?

  5. jun says:

    ok na yan in that price.. hmmmm.. wait wait mode paren.. tingnan naten pag release ng apple ipad2.. :) kaya peeps.. wait mode muna kayo.. marami release this year..

  6. wilde says:

    Nice info there Yuga.

    Btw, would you know if a 7″ version eventually come out?
    A 10″ tablet is too big/heavy.

  7. Cathy De Guia says:

    nice gadget.. but still waiting for the arrival of iPad 2.. let’s see which is better and more advanced.. wanna win an iPad?? maybe an iPad 2? youcan join the promo on a job site.. here: http://www.jobsdb.com.ph/PH/EN/StaticContentFullContainer/PromoJDB/index.html
    i think many high technology gadgets will develop this year…

  8. Jam. says:

    maybe they’ll be releasing an Android 3.0 Tablet.

  9. raymund of brother toners says:

    NEO is also aiming a market share for tablets.

  10. Looks nice, and price isn’t half bad either. Apple products are totally priced out of my reach, so while I know they are grand things (having owned an iBook G4 in the long ago), they will never factor in my personal product choices.

    That said, I’ll be tracking reviews of this pretty thing. My netbook is a Neo, and works beautifully for me (even with WinXP, imagine that); while two of my phones are Samsungs that hardly ever leave my hands, so a Galaxy Tab is also a prime candidate.

    Ah, product competition can be such a lovely thing. :)

    bought mine last saturday, medyo disappointed lang because of the the flash didn’t come pre-installed and 1080p playback didn’t work, pero now its working mabuti na lang, another thing is its weight kasi mabigat sya, sana included na rin yung kickstand, hands will be strain kung paglagi mo sya hawak. siguro yung sound na rin situated kasi yung speakers nya on the back.

    strong points siguro ng omnipad is battery life, great processing power and price. eventhough wala syang out of the box experience its still worth the buy.

    • mrOrange says:

      ask ko lang sir, have you tested the usb port, is it usb host wherein you can read data from a flash drive or external hard drive?

      just played with a unit from compex Park Square but even they could not give me a straight answer with regars to the usb.

  12. csseyah says:

    wow.. wink* wink* I like that!

  13. Edwin C says:

    Hintay ko iPad 2. When ba?

  14. Ethan Tremblay says:

    bye netbooks and desktops! hello tablets!!

    btw, @sir abe: do you know when will mozilla release their seabird? tnx

  15. Patutz says:

    san po ba nakakbili nito sa pinas?

  16. 2toyzki says:

    sa compex may nakita ako nito sa farmers. P15++k yung price.probably its the wifi-only version.

  17. NineSwordz says:

    Puro kayo “im waiting for the iPad 2.. i can’t wait bla bla..” eh bibili ba kayo? hehe. XD back to Neo..

    Pros:
    ARM Cortex A9 + 512 MB DDR2 + 512 MB NAND
    16Gb micro SD bundled

    Cons:
    Not WiFi 802.11 b/g/n?
    Looks like iPed.. XD

  18. wickedservant says:

    buy filipino! we can’t rely on OFWs forever. let’s invest on our own and become a country of manufacturers instead of copycats. kahit unknown i bought it. why? so that the money i paid for it will make the next model better…

  19. Kobe-air says:

    @nineswordz, it has wifi. Read carefully. Just update the android version and bump in 16gb of internal memory plus sd card for the same price and im sold.

  20. ^^
    ang ibig nia atang sabihin WiFi 802.11 b/g lang, wala sa “n”. haha ewan. andaming pagpipilian, bakit ang archos lang ang may 250gb na mem. sayang ito at ang pinapangarap kong playbook.

  21. NineSwordz says:

    @John: yup! yung “N” nga. ^^ and he said to read carefully.. lol XD

    yung sa archos kasi eh HDD eh, kaya 250. SSD yung mga 8-16Gb ng ibang tablet.. di bale mga bro dami pa lalabas jan. >.<

  22. It’s a nice one from Neo, they’re just showing that they’re capable of going with the present trend. http://iloveyou-mydear.blogspot.com/

  23. alvin says:

    sorry. Neo for me is still something I won’t ever go back to after suffering from poor after sales customer service.

  24. Alvin says:

    Eto na yata ang pinakamurang Android tablet na nakita ko with “AWESOME” specs… NVIDIA Tegra 250 FTW! IMO, nakalamang to sa Archos 101 dahil sa Tegra and Dual Core Cortex A9…

  25. Gerard Banasig says:

    The specs are good, looks like the neo omni pad is nice and fun to have.

  26. KImkae77 says:

    nice one..
    pwede din kaya dito yung 3g modem like my flytouch2?

  27. Sketch says:

    Who is the ODM of this product?

  28. interesting… even their 3G version is cheap but since they will be coming out with a better model, I’ll just have to wait for that.

  29. JunAlquis says:

    the better model should have have Android 3.0 o kahit 2.3 man lng since dual core processor naman to eh.

  30. Harley Mah-Son says:

    Nice one from neo and if ever they will be releasing a better one, I will surely get one as long as it is 3G capable. I love Neo. My Neo Elan N3103 is still working perfectly from the day I bought it. It has been with me for almost 2 yrs now. When buying Neo, go for the latest and ones with a higher specs and do inspect it well before taking out your hard-earned cash!

    Peace!

    review ko sa neo omnipad

    specs given na alam na ng mga readers so di ko na ilalagay dito.

    usb port. okay sya pero limited lang sa flash drive, di nagana ang bradband stick, external cam, even external dvd rom

    kasi mababa ang supply nya ng voltage to support dvd rom

    hdmi port are working properly nice..

    may isa pang port sa ilalim i/o port compatible sa mga cable ng china android. thing is may kailangan pang software na mkikita mo lang sa mga chinese android

    walang market so limited lang ang apps di mo rin ma fu fully utilize

    wala rin bulid in apps na mula sa android tulad ng contacts, mail, calendar ect.

    di pa upgradable stil using froyo na puro bugs

    lacks of button so di rin ganun ka daling gamitin.

    ang camera though 2 megapixel sya so malaki yun lang sobramg poor quality at nasa harap lang
